Critics lined up Thursday to cheer the felon who assaulted Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, claiming that the neighbor who had put a sitting U.S. senator in the hospital was a patriot.
The attacks started after Paul submitted a question in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial and Chief Justice John Roberts opted not to read it. The reason given was a concern that the question might reveal the identity of the whistleblower.

Paul responded by releasing his question publicly anyway.
My question today is about whether or not individuals who were holdovers from the Obama National Security Council and Democrat partisans conspired with Schiff staffers to plot impeaching the President before there were formal House impeachment proceedings.

Paul’s detractors took to Twitter to attack him, and many did so by cheering the neighbor who, in 2017, attacked Paul so viciously that he eventually had to have a part of one of his lungs removed.
Rand Paul’s neighbor is one of the great patriots of our time
